Xann said “We are thrilled about winning both the Jury choice and Audience choice of the Music Tectonics 2021 Pitch Competition. I enjoyed every second of this competition, and boy what a wild first experience in the metaverse!

Events like these, in 2021 in particular, showcase the pace at which the music tech space is growing. I am constantly inspired by the startup founders I meet in this space.

A huge thank you to my rock solid team Biiah for getting us here. To the audience for being so engaging and enthusiastic about what we’re building. And of course, to the jury and BandLab Technologies for supporting this platform for music tech startups to take the next leap in their journeys.

Watch this space as we continue on our mission to make music education accessible to everyone!
